D.K. - The Goddess Is Dancing - transcendent Fourth World tape from 2019 is now getting a vinyl issue (Good Morning Tapes)
We're very honoured to welcome Paris based DJ & Producer D.K (@d-k-music) into our family ashram.
Some of you may know him via his previous releases on Antinote, Jonny Nash's label 'Melody of Truth' or more recently his split EP via Second Circle.
He's also the melodic mystery man behind those jacking 45 ACP releases via dear brother Ron Morelli.
Though here on this 38 minute cassette, aptly titled 'The Goddess is Dancing', D.K. delves back into his ancestral Vietnamese past & blesses us all with 6 originally composed tracks that pay homage to the mysterious shamanistic dance of 'Hau Dong'.
As explained by D.K. here....
"This tape is an imaginary interpretation of the music used in Vietnam’s ancestral/spiritual possession rituals called 'Hau Dong'. It’s a ceremony in 5 parts, whereby spirit mediums dance on each song to honor the mystical goddesses of Forest, Water and Heaven. Whilst dancing during these rituals, the Medium's appear to transform themselves into different characters....changing their personalities, as if various spirits have entered their bodies."
